BLACKKKLANSMAN
2018, Focus Features, 135 min, USA, Dir: Spike Lee

This incredible true story of an American hero offers an unflinching examination of race relations in 1970s America that is just as bracingly relevant in today’s tumultuous world. As the first African-American detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department, Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is viewed with open hostility by the department’s rank and file. Stallworth resolves to make a name for himself and a difference in his community through a dangerous mission: Infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. Posing as a racist extremist, Stallworth soon finds himself invited into its inner circle, even cultivating a relationship with Grand Wizard David Duke (Topher Grace). With the help of colleague Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) - who poses as Ron in face-to-face meetings with members of the hate group - Stallworth works to take down the organization, whose real aim is to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. The Grand Prix winner at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.
